An official state of drought has been declared in some parts of Britain after the driest spring on record.
Much of northern Europe is also suffering with rainfall down 40 per cent in many areas.
In the UK the regions worst hit are major farming regions, leading to fears of a rise in food prices as crops fail.

• I have been asked a number of times to do a munitions update. This video intels where to purchase, best deals on multiple types of ammo, how to invest with bulk supplying, pricing, etc.
• In these times of uncertainty with all that's going on in the world, (while not completely ruling out gold & silver as an investment option), it's good not to put all your eggs in one basket. I say buy mil-surplus firearms and munitions! Seriously, if you just buy gold and silver who's stopping someone from just taking it from you......
We started prepping. Worried about inflation, rising food prices and the overall state of the economy not only the US but the world economic crises. Knowing where to start can be overwhelming but we found the solution to our SHTF food storage issue. Our survival plan consist of many different things but the chance of a food shortage in the US was the last thing we thought we had to worry about. Now our SHTF plan includes storing food and supplies long term. As far as prepping food is concerned...here's we we started.

S. 1867 -- National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2012
(Sen. Levin, D-MI)

Thank you for contacting me regarding the new provisions for detainees proposed in Sections 1031 and 1032 of S. 1253, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012. I welcome your thoughts and comments.
Section 1031 of the NDAA establishes guidelines to allow U.S. Armed Forces to detain "covered persons" captured during hostilities as unprivileged enemy combatants, pending disposition under the laws of war. The provision defines a "covered person" as a person who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. This provision also applies to individuals who support al Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners.
Section 1032 requires U.S. Armed Forces to hold in custody as an unprivileged enemy combatant any person who is a member or part of al Qaeda or an affiliated entity, and who participated in planning or carrying out an attack or attempted attack against the United States or its coalition partners. The requirement does not extend to citizens of the United States. Also, the Secretary of Defense is authorized to waive required detention.
S. 1253 has passed the Senate Armed Services Committee, and is currently awaiting consideration by the full Senate. Should this legislation be brought to the Senate floor, you may be certain that I will keep your views in mind.
I appreciate hearing from you, and I hope that you will not hesitate to contact me on any issue that is important to you.

Many people think that dumpster diving or similar tactics are beneath them. But there are a lot of great things you can get for FREE simply by hauling them home yourself. In this video I show a haul of lumber that I got for free to use for building items. It's a great way to recycle and you can get creative with the items you rescue. For preppers who are worried about stocking up on supplies in these tough economic times due to lack of money, this is a super method for doing that within your budget.

Every year India spends $12 billion on purchasing oil from Iran, but now it is using gold instead of dollars. India might not be alone; China has suggested it would jump on board with India. New Delhi and Beijing account for 40 percent of the Iranian oil exports. Priya Sridhar gives us her report.

For the second time in two days, Iran has threatened to shut down the Strait of Hormuz if new sanctions are imposed in response to its nuclear program.
Vice President Mohamed Reza Rahimi threatened on Tuesday to close down the strait and cut off oil exports if the West imposes sanctions on his country's oil shipments.
"If they impose sanctions on Iran's oil exports, then even one drop of oil cannot flow from the Strait of Hormuz," Rahimi said.
"Closing the Strait of Hormuz is very easy for Iranian naval forces," Admiral Habibollah Sayyari told Iran's state-run Press TV on Wednesday. "Iran has comprehensive control over the strategic waterway."
Sayyari is head of Iran's navy and is currently overseeing a military exercise in a 2,000-kilometer stretch of sea from the Strait of Hormuz, at the mouth of the Persian Gulf, to the Gulf of Aden, near the entrance to the Red Sea.
"Iran's military and Revolutionary Guards can close the Strait of Hormuz. But such a decision should be made by top establishment leaders," he said last week.
The Tehran Times reported on Monday that the "war games" are different from previous ones in terms of the vastness of the area of action and the military equipment and tactics employed. Submarines, warships, missile-firing destroyers, coast-to-sea missile systems, drones, and electronic warfare equipment will be tested during the exercises, according to the newspaper.
